Nova Lima is a municipality of about 87,000 people located about 20 to the south-east of Belo Horizonte, the capital of the south-east Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. Historically, the city was known as known as Campos de Congonhas, Congonhas de Sabará and until 1923 as Villa Nova de Lima. The city belongs to the mesoregion Metropolitana de Belo Horizonte and to the microregion of Belo Horizonte.The city is home to several mines, including the Morro Velho, Mostardas, and Rio de Peixe mines. A number of minerals are extracted from these and other sites in and around the city, including gold.The St. John Del Rey Mining Company was founded by British interests in 1834 for the extraction of gold and also caused the settlement of some 150 families from Britain which led to the establishment of the Anglican Church in town.SportsThe city is home to the Villa Nova Atlético Clube, the second oldest football club of Minas Gerais still active. The club was a major force in the 1930s until the early 1950s and won in that period five state championships. It is still a regular participant in the first division of Minas Gerais. From the late 1920s until the end of the 1930s th Sport Club Retiro also took part in the state championship. With José Perácio in 1938 and Luiz Carlos Ferreira "Luizinho" in 1982 two players born in Nova Lima represented Brazil in World Cups.
